Sarab Rezzo

Since 1994

Ypsilanti

Why did you choose this neighborhood?
Because it’s a family oriented, value driven neighborhood

Tell us about your family
A close knit family of 5, well-educated with high degrees.

What concerns you the most about the proposed bus yard?
It will negatively impact the quality of life for the children, including infants, which I care for in my daycare.

What would you like our University neighbors to know about neA2?
Our community believes the proposed bus yard will severely detriment our neighborhood, and we prefer if you examine alternate locations for the yard, preferably in an industrial region, rather than a residential one.

 

action items

  1. Continue writing letters! It’s working. If you’ve already written a letter to the UM Regents & President, please write another one with the following points:
    • Thank the President and the Regents for acknowledging the situation and putting the project pause.
